in the making. with republicans more reliable election day voters, the argument goes, democrats have built up a bank of early votes, ones that make wink those battleground states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means that romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate tak

romney who are if you will poo-pooing on that moment of joint unity. it makes some voters take pause to say these are people in romney's camp who say this is a bad thing. how can you see this as anything other than a good thing to have these two leaders together. >> right. people actually criticized the republicans, including rush limbaugh, who pounced on that. hurricane sandy, where people actually might say somehow this was the moment where either mitt romney or barack obama lost the contest, the blame to put on this, we saw this before. of course, it was in 2008 with lehman brothers collapse. you say a lot of republicans blame that for john mccain and sarah palin's loss more than the overall dynamics of what that presidential contest was about. in 2004 that osama bin laden tape that surfaced right before the election, there were john kerry partisans that blamed that for actually hurting john kerry at the end of the day. >> thank you very much. i hope to see you tomorrow. thank you, mark. >>> right now officials in states hard-hit by hurricane sandy are making final plans for the e
was under mitt romney. >> a maryland voter said she didn't mind waiting in line at the polls, but she did mind what happened next, this story at 11:00. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message
spell trouble if you look at these polls. the pew center found 50% of these voters said romney would do a better job of improving the job situation, just 42% said president obama. neither candidate, i can tell you, from a business reporter standpoint, has created a strong plan. >> selling his business experience, it sold very well. it took a huge dip over the summer when all of the bain capital ads came out, when the obama campaign completely pounded mitt romney on the airwaves for what he did as a businessman. but we saw the comeback during that first debate when people took a look at mitt romney and said, oh, look, he seems to know what he's talking about. the president put in a subpar kind of performance in that first debate and we saw mitt romney's numbers rise and surpass the president's. two other numbers you already know, christine, one of them is consumer confidence. even if it's bad now, if you think it's going to get better, your going to vote on that. and the other one is that question about who understands you best, who understands your loif, who understand your needs. and p
. early voting, this is a good indicator of voter enthusiasm and romney has gotten half of early votes accord to go pew research. half of them and independents, latest poll shows romney 7% lead among independent voters. what do you say, monica. >> that independent number is significant and may actually climb. when you look at independent voting going on now, early voting and polling among independents, in the swing states. romney is leading obama by 7 in ohio, and a whopping 21 among independents in virginia and 5 among independents in florida. now, some of those numbers may close up, but what it tells you is that look, races are won in the middle when you're leading by this amount and this percentage, nationally and in the swing states among independents, it looks very good for mitt romney. the other thing to look at, too, it party i.d. which gallop showed this week at a record high for republicans, romney leading 10 points in party i.d., voter i.d. stuart: is that big enough to swing the states? >> i would say 5 to 6 points, maybe not. 21, yes. romney is going to win virginia, but we

romney are full speed ahead in the battleground states seeking out undecided voters. president obama was in boulder, colorado yesterday. today he has three campaign events in ohio. he will be anxious to hear the jobs report. political expert telling the san francisco gate if the unemployment rate stays below 8% he believes voters will slug it off. any increase would mean president obama would -- face voters with the highest rate since roosevelt if the rate is above 8%, mitt romney is going to use that to his advantage. he campaigned in virginia yesterday. this morning, romney starts in wisconsin and moves to ohio. "the new york times" reporting the romney campaign is making a serious play for pennsylvania last minute appearance there sunday, polls now show president obama's edge in pennsylvania is narrowing. will the jobs report give either any massive boost? that's unclear. experts say all but a few voters have likely made up their minds, particularly, about the economy. katie marzullo, abc7 news. >>> developing news for one of the areas hardest hit by the superstorm. con ed officia
up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call comes from frank in burke, virginia. caller: thank you to c-span. i want to talk about the balance in fairfax county, the most populous county in virginia. we have electronic and paper. they are outdated and they were supposed to have been disposed of five years ago. yet the options of paper or electronic when you go to vote. they're not

(laughter) and they're a coveted democrat graphic of voters in this election. mitt romney is not against this law, right? he said -- he said he's neither for it nor against it so we can assume he's for it, right? >> he's not said anything. his staffer told the reporter "we'll get back to you" and so far they have not got back to us. >> stephen: well, maybe he's just trying to keep a great surprise. (laughter) like when he gets into office he'll sign a law giving you twice the pay. >> i don't think so. >> stephen: what if women just hold out and just see what's behind door number mitt.

[cheers and applause] >> the looked like he was enjoying himself, which was not always the case in this campaign. people wondered after he still had a fight in him, after his first debate. he also had good reason to smile. the unexpected backing of new york mayor michael bloomberg, out from managing the city's response to hurricane sandy to endorse president obama. he was not un critical of the president, but he link to the hurricane to climate change and said that the storm has brought tuesday's election into
, that and that was really what mitt romney was running on, once you lose that argument, they didn't have any place else to go. they went to welfare reform and extraneous things where they're basically like let's get your voters angry, uncomfortable, get them to come up because they hate the guy. the problem is not enough americans hate barack obama -- >> i'll tell you what i'm impressed by is obama bringing in the cavalry. he brought in colin powell. said are you going to endorse or not and he wouldn't tell me. just at the right time. he got bloomberg coming out -- >> and by the way -- >> now the biggest endorsement you can get, the best surrogate on this planet is bill clinton. former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work
essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. it's almost like he's in "men in black" and he thinks he has a flashy thing where he can say something and reverse himself and count on not being called for it. between fouling and the way that mitt romney has run, in a lot of ways if this is the way you can win a presidency, if he can win this way, i think it says horrible things about our policies. >> using the word lie. if you're willing to completely fool your base -- >> your own base. >> you might fool everybody. >> he's lying to the base or lying to the middle. i think one of the essential questions that will be settled on tuesday is does bs work? can you put out the
and by getting young people jobs. >> what has mitt romney done to reach out to young voters? >> i think -- >> and has he been effective? >> yeah. mitt romney's message, along with paul ryan, who we have to remember is the first -- the first candidate on a presidential ticket born in the 1970s. he's pretty close to our age when you think about it. i think that's helpful. but i also think it's just message of being willing to make the tough choices necessary to get our country back on track. that's what young people want to see. we've heard enough empty promises from the obama ticket. we heard enough four years that haven't come to fruition. and that's why young people are looking at the republican ticket now. >> the last four years have been difficult for everybody. can young people be as enthusiastic about this president as they were four years ago? >> i mean, yes. he's not come in and he's not been about empty promises. he said health care would be something young people would have access to, that would be affordable and he's made that happen. he came in, he said that unemployment is a
voters to the poll. how does he look? >>guest: well, mitt romney has the advantage with intensity. people who want to vote president obama out of office and want to vote republican do not care how they feel about mitt romney they will get in the car and they are energized. he will not have a problem turning his voters out. it is looking like a base election and i don't think anyone has momentum and i don't anyone is swaying undecided. it is about turning out the voter. for president obama the storm shows people suffering and it will be a tough day to get your supporters to vote. >>shepard: i wondered about that. by day five of a hurricane, or day six everyone picks someone to be mad at. sometimes it is the local, sometimes it is mad at your president. >>guest: and all heart strings that were pulled by the governor of new jersey and the president coming together it towns to bitterness. watching people not getting food or gasoline and not able to get to work, it starts to upset people. five days in, by tuesday morning, the nation could feel differently about this than on thursday. >>shepard
minutes of a speech from president obama and 12 minutes of a speech from candidate romney. the last of the jobs reports is out and the economy is the greatest issue of the election if the voters but how much does the report stand to shake up the race if we will bring in an associate editor for "the hill" number in washington, dc. she will be on our panel on election night on fox broadcast network. the last minute numbers, how do they play? >>guest: i don't think it is a big deal. it will not shake things up. this number allows both candidates to continue their talking points. romney saying this is not strong enough and president obama is not capable of fixing the economy, and he is, and it is time for a change and president obama saying we are looking at steady job growth, and we are headed in the right direction. people are starting to tune the jobs reports out. they do not affect the polls in september or october. >>shepard: was that something that would drive you, but if you are about jobs is how you feel about jobs. do i have a job where i am upwardly mobile or my kid? >>guest:
is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> we know what this president believes. but governor romney -- >> with these guys, it all depends on who you're talking to, where you are, what time of day it is, what state you're in, what the polls say. how the weather is. it always, always depends, everything depends. i never met more two guys who everything depends more on. i don't know what they are for, ladies and gentlemen. >> mr. romney made changes, too, depending on the weather, but not this president. this week president obama has shown why he is above the man who wan
president obama. 46% of ohio's likely voters support mitt romney. it is that close. and, of course, in ohio, every single vote is valuable. ballots are guarded and tracked with ferocious precision. but i got a behind the scenes up close look in one county to see how the ballots are actually counted. here it is. in person -- >> name, two forms of i.d., signature, looks good. >> reporter: or by mail, all ballots in hamilton county, ohio, end up here, election headquarters. >> so this is when the absentee ballots come back from the post office. we have the clerks who scan them back in and check them for making sure they're valid. >> reporter: processed by an army of staff, volunteers, and machines. norman jr.'s turn now. a brand-new machine named after the character in the movie psycho, because of this noise. norman scans, photographs, and separates ballots into precincts. >> we start with mail buckets and just toss them all in. >> reporter: are you happy to have this machine? >> with this many ballots, yes. >> reporter: now downstairs to the inspectors. this is it? >> this is it. this is wher
